Are You Experiencing a Cervicogenic Headache? How We Treat and Assess Headaches
Do you have a headache following a whiplash injury or do you experience pain that seems to start in your neck and then spread through to one side of your head or arm?
If you have answered yes to any of the previous symptoms, there is a high chance that you have what we know as a cervicogenic headache. Lucky for you our team at Miami and Lakelands Physiotherapy can assess and diagnose your headache and help you manage your pain. We created a specific plan of care tailored to treat your headache that includes mobilization, soft tissue management and a range of exercises such as strengthening and stretching.
Jordan will now show you how to complete a few exercises. However, it is recommended that you come in and see one of us to ensure you are doing them correctly and that you are at the right stage of your rehab.
